DL-Dithiothreitol/DTT

Article number:

5250075

CAS No.:

3483-12-3

Formula:

C4H10O2S2

Chemical description:

(2S,3S)-1,4-bis(sulfanyl)butane-2,3-diol

Synonyms:

DTT, Clealand's Reagent, Clelands Reagent, D/L-Dithiothreitol, Dithiothreitol

Molecular weight:

154,25 g/mol

Used in molecular biology. DTT preserves proteins of interiors of cells in their functional form by avoiding the oxidation of Sulfhidril-groups (SH-) into disulifidbridges through atmospheric oxygen. On the other hand the convolution of proteins whose structure is stabilised by disulfidbridges may be destroyed by their reduction. It is an important reagent in the course of SDS-PAGE and Western-Blotting respectively.
